THE IMPORTANCE OF REAL BUTTER
(from Dr. Mercola and Weston A. Price Foundation)
Contrary to western medicine's campaign of blaming butter for a host of diseases, science says that butter is in fact packed with nutrients that benefit nearly every system of the human body.
A key factor in obtaining vitamin rich butter is using only 100% grass-fed cows.
Vitamin A is imperative for a wide range of functions including promotion of good vision and a healthy hormonal balance.
Vitamin D is a potent cancer fighting agent because it promotes healing and strong bones.
Vitamin E is crucial in maintaining good vision as one ages.
K2, termed the "X factor nutrient" by Dr. Weston A Price, is essential for optimal growth.
K2 deficiency in infants and small children is correlated to dental deformities.
Butter is rich in selenium, a powerful antioxidant (ounce for ounce, butter has more selenium per gram than whole wheat and garlic).
It's also a rich source of iodine, which is vital to optimal thyroid gland function.
Butter has significant amounts of healthy fatty acids:
• Butyric acid: a potent anti-carcinogen and vital energy source for the colon
• Lauric acid: a medium chain fatty acid that is a potent antimicrobial and antifungal compound
• CLA: excellent protection against cancer
Butter also has small but equal amounts of the essential fatty acids omega 3 and omega 6.
In the proper ratio, these prevent heart disease and maintain your brain and nervous system in lifelong good health.
But here's the kicker...
100% grass-fed cows yield especially high levels of nutrients opposed to their commercial counterparts.
It really is advantageous to get your butter from properly fed cows!
Next time you're considering a healthy source of fat to spread on toast or cook with, try a little grass-fed butter.
Grass-fed is best!
